I am very interested in 6.9 rpms for FC4 (I need multihead,
independent, and concurrent X servers). I tried to rpmbuild my own
using the kit at http://sergiomb.no-ip.org/xorg/ which is based upon
your previous 6.8.99.x packages, but could not get a working package.
I considered trying to get it to work myself, but the spec file is
more complex than any spec file I have ever seen.

So, I for one would be very appreciative of any time you spent on the
issue. Hurray for Mike Harris!
